An excellent class. Helen is a terrific teacher and you feel as though you are part of a real class with other people. The exercises are well explained and demonstrated and safety is paramount. The length and timing are just right too and after class I feel taller and more supple than before. I shall definitely be joining again. Thank you.
A gentle stretching session I did Pilates some years ago and Yoga too. Before the Pandemic, I went to a variety of classes- Easyline gym, Hydrotherapy, Tai Chi and Aqua. With these stopping, I still gardened and took up walking in my Local Country Park using Nordic poles. However, I felt I needed a stretching exercise and seated Pilates is just the thing. Helen shows you her posture for the exercises and I follow- but not push my body. The pace and range of exercises makes me feel good. This is a lovely session for getting back a toned body working to your limits.
Thoroughly enjoyed this (and last week's session). Helen's a very good teacher, very clear instructions and good pace of delivery.
